Michael van Gerwen don’t want too much value to his three surprising defeats last weekend at the qualifiers in Wigan for the UK Open.

“It is never nice to lose, but these are not more than opwarmtoernooien,” said Van Gerwen, who lost to Ritchie Edhouse, Steve Beaton and Peter Wright, Monday in The Telegraph.

“The UK Open Qualifiers are not as important as the Premier League and the upcoming tournaments. Though I have of course not done what I wanted.”

The 27-year-old Van Gerwen came despite the defeats, however, just for the main event of the UK Open, which is from 3 to 5 march in Minehead.


Thursday is Van Gerwen back in action in the Premier League and he plays in Nottingham against Wright. About its shape makes de Brabander, who is almost four months unbeaten, no worries.

“I have good played, only here and there a few doubles missed. We are going there on Thursday again good against.”

Van Gerwen started the Premier League last Thursday in Newcastle with a draw against Gary Anderson. His duel with Wright state upcoming Thursday as a fourth is scheduled after 20: 00 (Dutch time).
